Thomas Played With Torn Labrum; Set For Surgery

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas III played through the Seahawks’ 28-24 Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots with a torn labrum and separated shoulder, per Ian Rapoport.

Thomas registered eight tackles and one assisted tackle.

Thomas will be sidelined for 6-8 months, but will be healthy by the start of the season.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a player fight through a very painful injury during a Super Bowl in the past. For instance, Los Angeles Rams defensive end Jack Youngblood played through a broken leg during Super Bowl XIV in 1980.

Thomas is one of the league’s best safeties, and is a key part of the Seahawks’ secondary.
